The National Park Service will waive entrance fees to Death Valley National Park every day and all National Park units between April 22-26, 2013 to celebrate National Park Week, part of a service-wide effort to invite all Americans to experience their national parks. With 401 National Park units nationwide, every American is less than 100 miles from a national park experience.

National Park Week runs from April 20-28, though fees are only waived Monday-Friday. As part of the week, the Death Valley National Park will promote junior ranger activities for National Junior Ranger Day on April 20th. Materials are available at the Furnace Creek Visitor Center.

Enjoy a day at Mesquite Sand Dunes, or wind your way through Golden Canyon, or stay cool with a visit to Scotty's Castle. Stroll along the salt flats at Badwater or see the colorful display of minerals at Artist's Palette.

To help plan your trip, go to, or call 760-786-3200 for more information. See for more information on National Park Week.
